Energy Technology专刊:太阳能制氢

二十世纪以来,使用化石燃料带来的危机愈发严重,而全球的能源需求却持续上升,因此我们迫切需要向可持续的无碳燃料过渡以减少化石燃料的使用。氢气具有丰富性、无毒、高质量能量密度和无污染排放等优点,如果在工业和能源消费末端成功应用,可以实现零碳排放,因此在能源领域吸引了大量关注并快速发展。随着近年来全世界的共同研究开发,”氢经济 “已经获得了巨大的动力,开始走向实际应用。绿色氢气技术(即完全使用太阳能等可再生能源来生产氢气),已经显示出很好的扩展潜力,并有望在未来几年进一步增长。在去年举行的第26届联合国气候变化大会(COP26)上,这一主题也占据了中心位置。

为了突出这一重要领域一些激动人心的发展,我们最近在Energy Technology上推出了一期专刊(2022年,第1期)。“Solar Hydrogen Production”(太阳能制氢)专刊汇集了来自全球各地的专家撰写的文章,展示了他们在该领域的最新发现;讨论了太阳能制氢的创新技术方法,包括光电化学、光催化和热化学水分解过程,以及其他以太阳能为媒介,推动生物质衍生物或甲烷转化为氢气的混合过程。此外,本期特刊还涵盖了太阳能制氢技术的不同阶段,包括从基础的材料研究到规模化集成系统的研究文章。

特别感谢Jonathan Scheffe教授(佛罗里达大学)、Greta Patzke教授(苏黎世大学)和Sophia Haussener教授(EPFL)担任本特刊的客座编辑,并感谢所有作者的贡献。

我们希望您喜欢阅读本期Energy Technology专刊。我们编辑团队随时欢迎各位研究人员在Energy Technology上展示大家在本领域或其他能源转换和储存的前沿领域里的突破性发现。

欢迎提交您的稿件!

此致,
